the PAR RRRRRRRRRR!!! crew

Yarrrgh matey, ye've been boarded!

Prepare to be gutted with laughs, quartered by puns, and walk the plank of ARRRRRS!



Captain Jack Sparrow

Sparrow is the Pirate Lord of the Caribbean Sea and can be treacherous, surviving mostly by using wit and negotiation rather than weapons and force; although he will fight if necessary, he tries to flee most dangerous situations. Sparrow is introduced seeking to regain his ship the Black Pearl from his mutinous first mate Hector Barbossa in the first film, and in the sequels, attempts to escape his blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones while battling the East India Trading Co.


Captain Morgan

Captain Morgan´s headquarters was in Port Royal in Jamaica. Although most of his early childhood is unknown, what what is clear is that he came to Barbados as young man. Most historians say that he was kidnapped from Bristol and was moved west as a slave on a plantation. This was common in these days, but unlike an African slave, Morgan probably worked as an indentured servant and had his freedom granted after seven years. In 1655, Oliver Cromwell dispatched a large force from England to capture the island of Hispaniola from Spain. The flotilla arrived at Barbados and landed on the island to try to gain volunteers. The amount of soldiers began to grow as slaves and servants abandoned their masters and joined in. Nineteen year-old Morgan may have been one of these kids as the story goes.


Captain Hook

Hook is both admirable and detestable, being a villainous gentleman in that he understands that there is a right and wrong way to commit evil deeds. Although he is a ruthless pirate captain, at times he seems almost compassionate, most commonly with Wendy; being a lady, most on the island are polite and attempt to be proper around Wendy. Hook, while usually hard towards the Lost Boys, is strangely gentleman-like when concerning Wendy, thus possibly developing a soft spot for her. He is hurt by the fact the children despise him, even though he has caused their hate himself. Barrie says Hook is often melancholy; the only time he is thrilled is when he is "plunging" his hook into a victim. Barrie also says Hook is a wonderful storyteller - he loves flowers and sweet music. He is also a talented musician, playing the flute in the stage play and the harpsichord in the novel and Disney film. He apparently smokes, as he devised a special double cigar-holder. There are many suggestions that Barrie based the character of Hook on himself, and they share the same first name.


Captain Blackbeard

Edward Thatch ( c. 1680[1] – November 22, 1718), better known as Blackbeard, was a notorious English pirate in the Caribbean Sea and western Atlantic during the early 18th century, a period referred to as the Golden Age of Piracy. His best known vessel was the Queen Anne's Revenge, which is believed to have run aground near Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina in 1718.[2]

Blackbeard often fought, or simply showed himself, wearing a big feathered tricorn, and having multiple swords, knives, and pistols at his disposal. It was reported in A General Historie of the Robberies and Murders of the Most Notorious Pyrates that he had hemp and lit matches woven into his enormous black beard during battle to intimidate his enemies. Blackbeard is often regarded as the archetypal image of the seafaring pirate.
